About me

My name is Dadi Einarsson and I am an Icelander that has lived in Sofia, Bulgaria for over 7 years. I moved to Bulgaria with my cat after getting married to my wonderful wife. We have two sons – Alexandar Odinn born on 12 December 2009 – and – Viktor Orn born on 15 September 2012. They are wonderful kids, smile almost all the time and – like their father – likes to eat a lot. I love animals and have probably too many of them, but I have one dog – Lobba. The dog came from the street in Sofia. In addition to Lobba then I also have one small aquarium (250 litres or 66 US Gallons) of tropical fishes.

My background is in political science and public administration. Most of my professional life has been in those fields both on national level in Iceland and for 4 years I worked for the European Commission in Luxembourg on public health issues. My main field of work for the Commission was HIV/AIDS and sexual health policy in Europe.

If you want to contact me then my e-mail address is dadi.einarsson@gmail.com.

Bulgaria undermines economic development

In Bulgaria rules are often strange but worse is that they are often an obstacle to business developments in the country. Good example of this are freelance contracts or that is the absence of them in the Tax Code. In most countries freelance contracts are like a contract with a company. The freelancer provides specific services to a company or an individual at a certain price and provides an invoice for it. The buyer of the service pays the invoice and that is end of their part in the financial aspect. The freelancer like a company then pays taxes and other mandatory fees to the state and/or municipality. In Bulgaria it does not work like this except for probably 5-6 professions. If a company in Bulgaria makes a freelance contract it has to deal with the payment similar as it would with a person on a labour contract such as withhold taxes and social security and then pay those to the tax authority. Basically freelance contract is not a freelance contract as much as a labour contract without fixed salary or fixed working hours.

Why don’t I care what people think about me?

Lot of people are occupied with the idea of if and why people like or dislike them. It matters to them to be popular and find ways to be popular. For large part it is what society expects people to want. Why couldn’t I care less what people think of …
